- Vickie Rushton failed to perform well at the latter part of Binibining Pilipinas
- She reasoned out that she got distracted while answering
- A lot of netizens expressed their opinions about the reason of the beauty queen
Vickie Marie Rushton, a heavy favorite in Binibining Pilipinas 2019, failed to bring home a crown during the pageant’s Coronation Night on June 9.
KAMI learned that the beauty queen’s performance in the Question and Answer round became the biggest factor why she did not win any title this year.
Vickie evidently struggled and was not able to finish her answer to Daniel Padilla’s question about mental health.
“Mental health is as important as physical health because of our inner being. Having self-love is important, and as a woman, I can inspire and empower the people to take care of themselves, to take care of their mind as well as their health because they will be as effective... And it takes..." she answered.
In an ambush interview by the press after the coronation, the former “Pinoy Big Brother” housemate reasoned out that she got distracted when she was answering.
She revealed that an audience inside the Araneta Coliseum suddenly stood up and made faces when she was trying to compose her statement.
“Nasayangan ako. I know kung ano ang sasabihin ko, pero may nag-distract sa akin sa audience. May tumayo at nag-make face," she disclosed.
However, a lot of netizens did not buy the reason of Vickie, stating that she is already a veteran in beauty pageants and she should know how to deal with pressure-packed situations.
Here are their comments:
“Grace under pressure. No other to blame but yourself. It's not your first time to join the pageant. You should have known about distractions around and get used to them.”
“No, Vickie. That's not an excuse. Amongst all the ladies who are part of the Top 15, you must be the one who could've answered the question well since Mental Health awareness is one of your advocacies.”
“Would be more acceptable if she would admit that she got overwhelmed by her special awards and she was already expecting that she will win the crown.”
“Kung naging humble pa siya at admit na lang na nagkamali, okay pa sana. Pero pag ganyan dahilan niya, nagmumukha siyang mayabang.”
“Nicole Cordoves was booed by hundreds of people from the audience while delivering her final answer yet she was able to answer firmly and bagged 1st runner up…”
